Robert Reich, the former Labor Secretary under Bill Clinton, wrote an essay on April 24, 2012 for OpEdNews entitled "Why Anyone Should Care that Bill O'Reilly Calls Me a Communist." Apparently, Mr. O'Reilly made this ad hominem attack on Professor Reich in reaction to a comment the Professor had made on Jon Stewart's "Daily Show." There, he had argued that, "because America's big corporations are now global, we can no longer rely on them to make necessary investments in human capital or to lobby for public investments in education, infrastructure, and basic R&D." For this reason, he concluded, government would have to step in and do the job that the corporations used to do.

The lack of attention in the press to what is happening in the rest of the world is a means to keep the American people ignorant and complacent. We do not have, as they do in Europe, national newspapers published by the political parties, both left and right, to help keep us informed about developments that the lapdogs of government, the mainstream media, choose to ignore.

Always remember: Government secrecy is as essential a means to repress the population as any military or paramilitary force. Take away the secrecy, and the oligarchs and their lackeys cannot defeat us. And the best way to do that is to keep yourself informed, from every reliable or even reasonable source of information you can find. It is your duty to do this as a citizen of the United States of America.
